Julia Varnergardner Being abroad taught me so many things about other people (my host family, my professors, and my new friends) as well as myself. I learned how to make friends easily and get myself from one place to the next with only the help I could offer myself. Friendships made in Tanzania were fast and strong despite whatever cultural differences we may have had. The ACM Tanzania program was perfect for me because I was able to gain credit for my biology major, while pursuing other passions as well. I studied new subjects, such as anthropology and human evolution, and Swahili (which I never before knew could be such a fun experience). The language aspect of the program was really wonderful because Swahili is a beautiful language and knowing it helped me to connect more with local people. I came into the country with wide-open expectations and that got me a long way. Without having any preconceptions I was able to become an entirely new person in Tanzania. I learned the meaning of confidence and patience and friendliness. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about Tanzania and my experiences there with affection and I would love so much to be able to go back one day.
